I am not sure, but these two look shopped to me. The white and black are way to shiny and clean.

This summer I stopped in a rest area on the Austrian A1 and I ate my lunch in the green area outside. It was quite disgusting. A such sign would have been useful there.
The habit to charge 0,50€ for using the toilet in rest areas, unlkely in Italy where they're free, doesn't help with the tidyness of the outside. I think truckers are the worst.
However Austria is generally a tidy country.

[OT] No, the worst are gypsies, making their way into Western countries and exporting their "culture" (although there certainly is a number of littering truckers as well)

A visual example: Norway is a very tidy country, regularly ranked among the world's most liveable, and 1000-fold wealthier than any Central European state. Yet even them don't manage to prevent gypsies from shitting in public places in broad daylight -> Click [beware, disgusting scenes].

That's a sign for Turks; they're Asians.

Don't start that shit again. Norwegians are pissheads when they go abroad and urinate and vomit their way through Mayrhofen in the winter, same as the Dutch.

I noticed that also about Germans, but not only about tidiness but also about discipline. When they go to France or to Poland, they do everything they wouldn't do in their own country I believe more and more the famous "Germans and Scandinavians are disciplined" is just a myth... They're human beings, like us all
However, I'm yet to see any place where gypsies go and keep it tidy. Though French gitans usually do, but I'm not sure they're of the same ethnic group...
End of OT.

You have not got it. The symbol depicts the skis from first person (her) perspective

Speaking of Tina Maze, her town Črna na Koroškem was this time renamed into Svetovna (prvakinja) na Koroškem (World (champion) in Carinthia).

I remember when it was renamed to 'Silver in Carinthia' and then 'Golden in Carinthia'. I can't find the pics, though.

And a few months later, I realize this post should be fixed, and I did so:
